Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Services

Where quality of life meets rehabilitation medicine


Our approach to physical medicine

We understand how physical limitations can greatly affect your quality of life. When simple activities such as bending down or walking upstairs suddenly become challenging movements, WellSpan physiatrists are here for you. 

Physiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in helping you regain your physical abilities and quality of life after an illness, injury, surgery or disability.

Our physiatrists take a personalized approach by learning your and your family's story — not just your condition. Together, we create a treatment plan that meets your unique needs and goals. Our board-certified physiatrists provide personalized care to treat any condition that limits your ability to perform life's tasks. 

We work collaboratively to get to know you and understand the impact of your condition on your life and lifestyle.

Conditions we treat

Our physiatrists are supported by interventional pain specialists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists and behavioral health counselors. We make up an experienced team of physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists — all here for you. And we work closely with your primary care doctor to keep them informed of your progress.

Our expert team provides physical medicine and rehabilitation care for adults in both the inpatient hospital and outpatient office settings, providing procedures and services including:

Lifestyle medicine focuses on helping people eat a more healthy diet, stay active, sleep better, improve social connections and mental health, and reduce harmful substance use — all as part of comprehensive, personalized care.

We also offer virtual group medical visits to guide you through your care plan and toward your best wholistic wellness.

Led by a physiatrist, these visits offer a supportive group setting for education, treatments and tools needed to accelerate your personalized plan of care. The virtual format is designed with your convenience in mind.
